For an opportunity to become more actively involved in hiking.
I started actively hiking and backpacking back in the mid-80's while living in the San Francisco area. That continued when we lived in Greenville, SC. Most memorable trip was a seven day loop in the Maroon Bells area of Aspen, CO.
None in particular. I just want to continue to experience as much of the Arizona landscape through hiking as I possibly can.
The water repells (2 back to back) were great! the work it takes to get in and out, not so great. I would go and do it one more time.
Bill, no the Nikkon, I didn't dare take that one on this trip! It was my waterproof Olympus, and it was full of some AMAZING pics from the trip....I was so disappointed, kinds ruined the trip for me. I will be getting another one for the next one though! Sorry to have missed you! Look for a FB invite to a trip to Zion in Aug...
Bill, I wanted to sincerely thank you for taking the time to show me the anchors and teach me a little bit about everything. I had so much fun and really appreciated you taking the time to teach me. Please keep us posted in the next few weeks. Heal quick, so we can go out and do another canyon again soon. I really enjoyed spending time with you!!!
Bill, I posted a meetup for Sierra Canyon. I would REALLY like you on this one. 02/06/2012.
i'm in central phoenix. i just have to be back in enough time to get cleaned up before work. i need to be at work by 330pm, so maybe not the xtra hike? i got your number saved, and will contact you tomorrow.
I think that sticks are more of hinderance on this trek.
There is a little oasis. It is on the left of the trail. Lots of bamboo and foilage and a spring-(coming out of pipe albeit). It lasts only but 4 steps but when you come upon it is is like a wonderland. You must having been flying.
